Beer Brat Charro Beans

When you’re out camping, this one-pot, beer brat stew comes together in a snap, especially if you chop the onion and garlic at home and transfer the beans and tomatoes to a container with a tight-fitting lid. Serve with your favorite toppings, such as scallions, vegan sour cream, and vegan cheddar cheese.
